Responsible Network Usage
Making sure you understnd the rules for using the school network…

The school computer system provides Internet access to students and staff. This responsible Network Usage Agreement will help protect students, staff and other users with access to the network, and the school by clearly stating what is acceptable and what is not.
Irresponsible use may result in loss of Internet / E-mail access. Irresponsible use includes the following among other inappropriate uses:

<> Accessing web based email facilities such as MSN or Hotmail
<> Accessing public chat rooms
<> Downloading inappropriate material
<> Sending of spam emails or inappropriate emails
<> Use of offensive or upsetting language within emails

Access must only be made via the user’s authorised account and password, which must not be given to any other person. If you decide to give out your password or allow others to see you typing it, you will be held responsible for any activity that takes place on your account.

Home Folders
Keeping your work organised…

<> Using your planner to help you, in your ‘Year 7’ folder, create a folder for each subject that you will have St. Joseph’s.
